We are planning to move to school catchment area as DDwill start school next year (2016). We have choice to move to Uxbridge or Pinner.

Uxbridge/Hillingdon has 2 good primary state school – Oak farm and Hillingdon primary

Pinner has lot more schools like Pinnerwood, Westlodge.

I am confused which would be a better choice. Experienced mums please help.

Since we are looking to buy a house in one of the places, can’t go wrong with the final choice.

Pinner's way more affluent than Uxbridge. I wouldn't particularly want a house near oak farm or hillingdon primary. I like being nearer to shops.

hillingdon primary doesn't have a good reputation although its rated outstanding by ofsted. oak farm can be very difficult to get into depending on siblings, birth rate for the year etc. you need to live as close to oak farm school as possible to be in with a chance

She is 8. Will be in yr 4 in September. What's the waiting time like? Can i reject a school they give if i dont want it and wait for her turn to come if I'm put on a waiting list?
